1.) Post the three links ( website, blog, video) to our blog

I think that designing classroom management plans takes more than just one point of view or come from just one source. Successful schools will share how their plans too time and many, many revisions, changes, deletions to come to this point. Here is an organization, with good foundations and reputation to be of service and I like how it addresses the administration side of education too.
Scholastic Instructor Blog
Blogs that have taught us a few things, made us laugh, made us cry, and reminded us that we are not alone in this sometimes stress-inducing, always awe-inspiring profession. Grades: PreK—K, 1—2, 3—5, 6—8, 9—12
I think it’s important to establish a support group of your own that understands what is happening in your classroom. It may not always be the teacher across the hall either. Connecting with people of same or similar profession can provide you with the comfort and collegiality necessary to survive. And some days we need all the help we can get. I like this resource too because it has other options as well. It’s a know company, it’s been around for a long time and they all talk teacher talk.
Rita Pierson: Build Relationships with your students
I like to use the pbs resources when ever I can. I have in the past purchased video sets of science and social studies topics. And put them in my learning plan for my students. So this website is familiar to me.
Everyday as a teacher, we struggle with the best of students and are under continual stress to always provide more, provide better and ensure all students have equal opportunity to learn. It’s not an easy job and some days I just need a little pep talk and to remind me why I put myself through this torture.
Here’s such a pep talk and you will laugh, you will cry and you will come away learning one more trick to put in your basket to make tomorrow a better day for everyone.
